Arena bomb­ing ap­peal fund hits £21.6m

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

AN ap­peal launched in the wake of the May 2017 Manch­ester Arena bomb­ing has reached a fi­nal to­tal of £21.6mil­lion.

The majority of cash raised by the We Love Manch­ester Emer­gency Fund, which stopped tak­ing do­na­tions at the end of Jan­uary, has gone to be­reaved fam­i­lies.

But trustees of the char­ity also help those who need on­go­ing med­i­cal sup­port and care.

The re­main­ing £1.1m from the fund will be given to those who suf­fered sig­nif­i­cant in­juries.
